Read
Read Genesis 3:6-10
This past weekend, Mike shared said that our “sin nature” is one of the reasons for the brokenness in the world and why we’ll continue to go through difficulties like the Covid-19 season we are in currently.

Our “sin nature” is the awareness to choose right and wrong along with an internal desire to reject the plans God desires for us to make.

Question: At what point in this passage did Adam and Eve’s “sin nature” become evident? How is humanity directly affected by Adam and Eve’s decision to disobey God?

Read Psalm 13
Despite the pain and struggles David was going through, he closes this Psalm by reminding of us of where his hope lies.

Question: How do think David found the strength to declare God’s goodness even in the midst of his difficult circumstances?
